The Brunei Darussalam Boules Sports Association left the country on Tuesday to take part in the 5th Asian Petanque Championship to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from Wednesday (August 16) to August 21.

The national team will compete in four main categories – men’s triples, women’s triples, men’s shooting and women’s shooting.

Association President Haji Mohamad bin Penglima Asgar Dato Paduka Haji Abdullah is leading the delegation.

Team Manager Junaidi bin Haji Mohammad Said and coach Hamidun bin Haji Abdul Hamid are accompanying the team.

The selected athletes to represent the country in the international stage are Wirna bin Haji Mohd Yassin, Mohd Abdillah bin Tamin, Azmi Eddy Mohd Harris and Abdul Manaff Didi Jr bin Ahdi.

The female members in the team include Mulsinah binti Haji Amran; Norhani binti Haji Juna; Khairul Bariyah binti Khairul Anuar; and Nuramalina binti Awang Mazlan.

Meanwhile, Mohd Abdillah and Norhani will compete in the men’s shooting and women’s shooting events.
